Youth both on the streets and in housing are in constant need of hygiene supplies, clothing, and food. School supplies help us stretch the budgets for our education programs and support students enrolled in traditional high schools and community colleges. Bus tickets get these young people to job interviews, medical appointments, shelter, and other services.
But hosting a drive doesn't just help provide these and other much-needed items. It's one of the best ways to raise awareness in the community of the challenges facing its homeless youth. Your business, organization, school, church, or other community group can make a big difference by hosting a drive and spreading the word, thus helping us to meet present needs and attract broader support.
In-kind donations play an important role in helping us keep costs down and meeting the needs of homeless youth. The list of current needs changes depending on the time of year, and there are ongoing items that are always necessary and useful in this work. You can help -- and help us inform the community and mobilize its support. For help deciding on the items you will be collecting and to learn more, visit http://www.youthcare.org/hostadrive!
